Well worth the trip through the narrow streets to visit the small church decorated with beautiful frescoes. There is a large church with a similar name on the main road through Pedoulas, so don't make that mistake.

There are lots of churches and hidden monasteries in he Troodos Mountains. This is one of the best with very well-preserved and striking frescoes dating back 500 years! The free Byzantine Museum across the street is small but impressive! Both are down a steep street,...More

Don´t be fooled that the Archangelos Michael is the large white church (Holy Cross) seen from all Pedulas, no this church is very small and located about 100m away from the big church.

The colours of the 12th century murals in this UNESCO Heritage church as you enter are quite breathtaking. The freshness of the colours are quite wonderful. Absolutely worth visiting.
